Fuel spill fears as more ships at risk

‘Fears are mounting that the grounded bulk carrier Pasha Bulker could break up as traces of fuel begin washing up on a Newcastle beach.

Two creases on each side of the ship can be seen as engineers begin efforts to assess the damage.

The Newcastle Port Corporation said there is a possibility of the ship breaking up, ABC radio reported.

Meanwhile, at least two more ships are expected to run aground in Newcastle as raging winds and monster waves batter the coast.’
